Low Voter Turnout Midterms Are Republican Mandate…According To Republicans
So, it must be reassuring to Republicans that they have the largest majority in congress in a lifetime based on the results of a midterm election that saw the lowest voter turnout in a lifetime. Way to go GOP! If there’s one thing that we know you are good at, it’s catering to things that are old, so it’s only fitting that you now own both houses of congress based on a public apathy not seen since the Great Depression. Now that’s something to celebrate! And it must indeed be reassuring considering the prominent Republicans like Senator John McCain and GOP chairman Reince Priebus calling the midterms results a “mandate.” It seems Republicans believe less than 37% voter turnout has given them policy carte blanche in Washington D.C. Aren’t Republicans such adorable creatures?
